What would we do without Yellowstone Landscape. Over the summer Lisa Hall, Employee Development and Program Manager and Scott Barnes, Senior Account Manager, rallied their summer interns to complete two days of service at BES. In early June, Lisa and Scott along with their interns completely overhauled our school garden. The purpose of their first visit was used as a team building experience. Their challenge was to see which team could get their garden area the cleanest! This included removing all debris (i.e. aging crops, a TON of weeds) and cleaning up any garden materials such as hoses, buckets and tools. When this project was scheduled both Lisa and Scott knew that Cathie Zanella, “the keeper of the garden”, was going to be out of town. They insisted on coming anyway to lend us a very needed helping hand. Our BES team jumped into action making sure the Yellowstone team had what they needed while they were there. The garden makeover was truly jaw dropping!

BES GardenThe amount of hard work, dedication and competition put in on day one apparently was just an appetizer for some of the interns!! Believe it or not, they were more than ready for another BES garden day. Therefore, in mid June, under the direction of Lisa and Scott, eight of the interns returned to BES to assist us in covering up our 38 garden boxes with heavy plastic. This type of work needs an incredible amount of teamwork, communication and resilience! They rocked it!

As we begin our new garden season at BES, we feel very fortunate and grateful to start our 4th year partnering with a brilliant and generous company such as Yellowstone Landscape.
